The storied and iconic Arista Records is set to make a major statement with this talented young singer. After all, Arista is most known historically as having launched some of the world’s most celebrated and iconic artists, including Aretha Franklin, Usher and Whitney Houston. Like Houston, NBDY is a Newark, New Jersey native who comes from a long lineage of talented musicians and vocalists. Beautifully, NBDY is actually following in his father’s footsteps. 20 years ago, Sony also inked a recording deal with his father.
20 years after his father signed with Sony, NBDY is excited to continue his family’s musical legacy by joining the Arista family. “Clive Davis’ dynasty at Arista gave us the most iconic artists of our time, so it’s hard to process that I’ve been blessed to continue the dynasty with David Massey and the new Arista team. Given where I come from, I’m glad to get to be the one to finally break the ‘generational curse’ in my family,” says NBDY.
NBDY has released four singles, including stand out tracks “Used To” and “Warning.” While NBDY is undoubtedly inspired by generations before him, he offers a new sound distinctly his own.
